SOURCE: Blower motor starts and stops

It sounds to me like an 'intermittently open circuit', or in plain language, when some part of the heater's circuit heats up a connection somewhere in the circuit 'opens up' stopping the flow of electricity. Then (10 minutes later?) when the circuit cools again the connection 'closes' again until warm. I would trace all the wires in that circuit from the fuse box to the blower motor (including fuse box & fuse) and look for broken or cracked insulation; make sure all connections are tight; I'd certainly check the heater's 'setting' switch (off,high, low switch) on the dash. It could also be a fusible link. This is a piece of wire somewhere in the circuit that 'feels' different than the other wire, more 'rubbery' and not as stiff. It's actually a little thinner wire inside than the rest of the circuit made to burn cleanly through (acting as a type of fuse) rather than over heating the circuit itself The problem has to be in this circuit, and something that 'opens' when heated. Good luck!

SOURCE: 2003 Ford Explorer-Rear Wiper Motor-How to Replace?

the plastic panel pops off , if you had a trim removal tool it would be nice but it can be improvised , they are just tension clips , get some kind of lever behind the panel and give it a pop , once the plastic panel is off its pretty much self explanatory from there , a connector and couple small bolts , now the outside has nut under the w/w blade , a piece of the arm cover pops up to access the nut , remove w/w arm , then a grommet and under the grommet is a bigger nut that helps hold the motor onto the door/hatch , when reinstalling before you put the w/w arm back on run the wiper and make sure it shuts off and in the park position . should be a piece of cake .

SOURCE: Engine Control Unit(ECU)

The ECU is a Direct Link to the Onboard Computer. You may need to get the Computer Replaced or at Least have a Mechanic run a Diagnostics Check on it. The reason it is acting this way is Because you are just Clearing the Trouble Codes by removing the ECU for a while. It is still sending a Fatal Error after Driven for a While.

SOURCE: 2003 Saturn Ion -just replace

Greetings,
Does the key have a chip in it? If it does, read the resistance accross both sides of the key chip on the 20k scale, buy a 96 cent pack of resistors from Radio Shack, and solder together a set of them that equals near 2% variance of what the key reads,shrink wrap them, try to locate the wiring and solder this resistance set up in the wires, try to start.
Wiring diagram is needed to be sure of the colors and location of wires to be spliced.

I came accross a remedy of some who had a remote control start installed and they stated this eliminated their starting horrors.
When you turn the key to start does it crank or does it make any sort of a noise, like a clicking to the relay?
try tapping the solenoid with a long bar tried just about everything else.

Why is the steering making a moaning sound on 1991 volkswagen westfalia ?


Groaning in the column itself could be the column bearings, or perhaps the horn contacts, although they make more of a scraping sound. A little lube sprayed between the steering wheel and column may help that. If you're referring to noise in the steering itself, sometimes the front upper control arm bushings groan when they're worn out. Or power steering fluid loss due to leakage from rotted power steering lines under the van. Trying to address all that I can think of, but your question is rather vague.

Hi, Just spray some DW40 in the ignition switch. Then put the key in and turn and wiggle it. If you have steering lock work it some more till it does.
Good luck.

When driving mainly when you let off the accelerator it makes a deep roaring sound and turning to the left causes severe vibration in the steering wheel.


Rear differential fluid deterioration causes a moan/vibration noise when turning left or right. Try flushing the rear diff with honda dual pump fluid and see what happens. As far as the roaring sound on deceleration this could be in the Transmision or Transfer case. I would go to your local Honda dealer and have a qualified technician go on a test drive with you. Some noises can be difficult to diagnose.

Stop with the WD-40 insert your key pull down on the left of your wheel slide key up & down slightly then try to turn key if this does the trick, Your tumblers in the ignition are worn down some. Instead of the WD-40 try Graphite ask at a hardware store or locksmith.
